Belmont and Hawthorne are located in the southeast quadrant, one of the most livable parts of the city. Trendy local shops and restaurants are filled with hippies and hipsters, but are also safe and family-friendly. Neighborhood homes have vintage charm, extensive vegetable gardens and eco-friendly inventions to conserve energy and re-use rainwater. If you are staying Downtown or in the Lloyd District, detour here for an afternoon shopping trip. Street parking is available.
